Dismembered: Polly Toynbee & David Walker, Pennine Lecture Theatre, 20 June, 7:30pm

“In an undisguised and unashamed ‘paean of praise’ to the public services, Toynbee and Walker look behind the rhetoric calling for a smaller state to examine the often chaotic and confused ways in which the public sector has been pushed and pulled by successive governments over the last 30 years.” – Sunday Herald. As part of the Festival of Debate, Guardian columnists Polly Toynbee and David Walker discuss their new book ‘Dismembered’, a critique of the current government and investigation into the dismantling of public services. The pair will question how these services can possibly be protected and share their findings having met with figures of the state. Tickets available from Tickets for Good, or SIV.
